PHOTOS | VIDEO | Horsham College host primary school maths Olympics


Horsham primary school year-six students put their mathematics skills and problem-solving abilities to the test when they took part in Horsham College’s annual Maths Olympics.
The college runs the annual event as an Education Week activity and this year students from Horsham West, Haven, Horsham, Ss Michael and Johns, Laharum and Natimuk primary schools and Holy Trinity Lutheran College took part.
College transition co-ordinator Heather Deayton and maths teacher Denise Vallance organised the challenge, which included rounds of competition.
They reported the last round of competition was particularly competitive and loud, with students having to run to receive their questions and have their answers marked.
The teachers enlisted a year-nine class and also reported the organising group members ‘did themselves proud, showing initiative and responsibility in their roles.’
An Iron Man team from Haven won round one, Laharum took the honours in round two, and a Tail of Destiny team from Natimuk won round three and also collected overall victory. Pictures: PAUL CARRACHER
